Hey Guys,

So, you should surely be aware of the band Titus Andronicus.They are not only one of the best bands in the world today, but also dear, dear friends of ours. We spent a month touring the US with them earlier this year and became best of pals.

This coming month, they undertake a two week tour of the UK. Part supporting the also great Soft Pack, and their own headline shows. Obviously, you will be wanting to go to these shows anyway, but we are asking a favour of you, also…

As is often the case for touring bands, money is tight (if there’s money at all) and Travelodges are expensive.

SO…Do you live in any of the following cities? Do you have a sofa/floor? Do you have room for five incredibly domesticated, ridiculously polite and frankly GOOD LOOKING All Americans?

Please, if you can help out that would be amazing. You’ll get into an awesome gig for free and be helping out some people a long, long way from home.

Please leave a comment below, or email:

Here is a picture of me and Patrick singing Casiotone For The Painfully Alone‘s “Toby Take A Bow”. I thing Patrick knows most the Twinkle Echo album on guitar, so maybe you could do a sing along with him. DO IT!!

Thank you for any help and support you can give our friends.

Truth. Tell the guys from Titus Andronicus (and the rest of the bands you consider) that here in South America people would literally make a line to have the privilege of being their (and your) hosts. I really hope they find places to stay in Britain, ’cause they deserve to be heard everywhere.

I would love to help but I think my parents would frown on me bringing home a lo-fi shoegaze indie band, if I had my own house I’d offer them cheese on toast as well.

But I wasn’t even aware of this gig, I’ll definately be at the Birmingham one

Comment by Matt

i and a couple of my friends are totally willing to let the band crash on our floors, but we’re students so you might want to find somewhere better. offer’s open, though.

oh yeah, we’re in oxford.

Comment by anothergirlanotherplanet

i left a comment earlier saying that i’d be willing to host the band in oxford (under a well old account, ‘anothergirlanotherplanet’, not sure where it vanished to but i figured you might have been emailed it) but i just realised that it’s a monday night and not really plausible – i’m sorry. but i bet the band will find somewhere better. oxford’s a nice place.

i wish i could go to this gig, bah mondays.
